Light leak wipe - in cool hues - 4K - free download

Here is my latest 4K light leak - or actually a set of 6 in one download!! As ever, available for free (and also you can watch it it in 2160p / UHD on YouTube) via Creative Commons, details below.

I collect all my light leaks on a special page where there are MORE FREE DOWNLOADS, so bookmark it. So far, they have been downloaded well over 400,000 times! And used in TV shows on NatGeo, Discovery and BBC1. As well as in many trailers and indie films.

This new one has a set of six different light leak wipes, all with a cool colour or cyan hue. This makes them great for hi tech or sciencey vibes!

All six are slightly different in style, but max out at pure white allowing for a transition or cut to occur underneath. I include all 6 in one download so that you can use them at different points in your edit without repeating the exact same effect over and over.






If, in your edit package, you then alter the speed of the clips or reverse them you can create even more different looks.

If you are using these clips for a commercial project with a budget then get in touch. I make the leaks free for non-commercial use (short films etc). Creative Commons details on the main page.

If HD leaks are of interest to you (under the same conditions) then I have loads here.

If you want to do me a favour because of all this cool stuff - that would be great too. Cheers. A few suggestions...


If you are super kind and get something out of using these then please donate a small amount via the button below...

Podcast Episode 59: Pete & Nat - Treehouse Digital.



This episode of podcast myself and Danny rock up to interview Peter Stanley-Ward and Natalie Conway from Treehouse Digital. We've known them for ages. I've known them for even longer than that. As Pete mentions, we first met when he came along to an evening class I was running at the local college. Going to writing classes, or starting your own class or group (one was started at Treehouse Digital this week!) is always a good idea. Just to meet other people you find a shared vision with.

Pete and Nat are unusual in that they are a couple of writers who are also an actual couple! They made their way into the creative industries via a low budget horror feature called Small Town Folk which they used both a self-funded training course AND a calling card.

Fast forward a few years and they launched a production company which does paid gigs as well as making fantastic shorts like Litterbugs. We like them as they do kids entertainment too, so we get to have a good industry gossip with them and share tips and leads. And then lent us their room for an audition for our next top secret project ;)

How did they do it? Who helped? What lessons have they learned? We asked them!

Is it better to make a feature and learn that way than go to Uni? And we compare our self / crowd funded movie with their one funded via Creative England - which way is better?

Fun fact: Pete filmed some of our behind the scenes footage on Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg?
